The Center for Molecular BioEngineering (CMBE) focuses on research for the improvement of biological processes through metabolic engineering. Metabolic Engineering involves targeted alteration of biochemical pathways toward the goals of increased yield and productivity of biological products, or for enhanced biodegradation capabilities. Other general objectives of CMBE are to add economic value to underutilized food, agricultural, textile, and paper resources in the state of Georgia through Bioprocessing. CMBE has facilities for the maintenance of both anaerobic and aerobic microorganisms, and molecular biology techniques are routinely practiced on procaryotes and eukaryotes. We also conduct DNA microarray experiments to elucidate gene expression in relation to phenotype and fermentation performance.
